From rhinos at the gate to bears who won't share, there are all SORTS of things that could go wrong. Luckily, Grandma is on hand to point out that there's no need to fright, as things could just as easily . . . go right! Simon Philip's latest picture book is a riotously funny but ultimately reassuring look at one child's far-fetched imaginings about the first day of school, brought to life by Ged Adamson's (Shark Dog) bold and fabulously expressive illustrations.

A riotously funny, but ultimately reassuring look at one child's far-fetched imaginings about starting school, from the writer of award-winning You Must Bring a Hat and Be More Bernard. I have to start at school today. You'll have such fun! my parents say. I know they think I'll be okay, But what if things don't go my way? Starting at a new school is BIG deal at the best of times, so what if you also had to deal with a cross rhinoceros, a selfish bear taking up your chair and a weird baboon with a loud bassoon? Luckily, Grandma is on hand to reassure that there's no need for fright because what if it just all goes...right? Simon Philip's spirited rhyme is perfectly paired with bright, bold, fabulously expressive illustrations from Ged Adamson, creator of Shark Dog.

Meet the McKaws

Author: Ged Adamson Illustrator: Ged Adamson Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2015

Captain Stan and Tiny McKaw are rough-and-tumble pirates. Whether it's searching for treasure or battling on the high seas, this adventurous duo is up for anything. But then Tiny's parents come to visit. Suddenly, the big pirate ship starts to feel very small. Mrs. McKaw is always nagging even in her sleep! Mr. McKaw insists on telling endless stories. And they both make the cook cry when they insult his food! After they stick Tiny in a very un-pirate-like suit and tie, Captain Stan has had enough. Get off my ship! he orders. Only moments later, though, a massive storm envelops the boat. Will the McKaws forgive Stan's outburst and help to save the ship and crew? From writer/illustrator Ged Adamson (Elsie Clarke and the Vampire Hairdresser) comes this hilarious story of family and forgiveness. Adamson's familiar humor makes Meet the McKaws a riot for everyone who has ever dealt with the trials of family. Accompanied by playful illustrations and bursting with color, this story is a reminder that while no family is perfect, a family's love is irreplaceable.
